I was watching The Daily Show and The Colbert Report this morning a week behind as usual. Don’t ask why or how, since I’m heading back to the rather litigious United States in 2 weeks. While having my coffee, I thought to myself, “Self, I wonder what all the words in the Colbert Report opening sequence are.” So I thought I’d try to list out what all the words in the opening sequence of The Colbert Report are. I sat here with coffee number 3, in front of my computer, Fox News Radio on (and being ignored) and figured out what they were.
Um… No I do NOT have too much time on my hands, but sometimes I need to step back for a bit and do something different.
After the eagle:
|International||(??)ble (behind the flag)||National(ist?)|
Jumping with the Flag
The parts in Red changed during the week of November 1st to November 4th. These ones change OFTEN.
|Fearnix Rising – November 1||Hang 2010 – November 2||Batter-Fried – November 3 & 4|
Falling & Looking at the Camera
|Star-Spangled (behind fearless)|
|Passionate (somewhat late)||Authoritative||Star-Spangled|
|National Treasure||Sanctified?? (above elbow)||Chiseled|
About to Land
In the Colbert Thunderdome Arena
This one is tough to read. I can make out up to 8 rows. Perhaps someone with HDTV can add to this part.
|Self-Evident||All Beef||High Fructose||Kingmaker|
Wow!! That’s a lot of lines of code! That “Colbert Thunderdome” section is a tough one. From what I can tell, there’s at least 8 rows of words there. Maybe a subliminal message or two thrown in for fun. Anyways, there you go! Now you know (most of) the words on the Colbert Report opening sequence. If anyone can add what the RED ones are from other episodes, by all means, leave them in the comment section!
Need more Stephen Colbert? Go find Colbert Nation, a fan site that I’m NOT part of, involved in, member of… in any which way or form.
